We'll be on NCL Star next March and won't be buying their internet offering.

Can you comment on the availability of free or low cost wifi in the ports ? Thanks

We did use the ship's internet and there was a fall off as we went further South . We didn't try it ashore but were on tours and shooting photos .

Hello again scubacruiser.  Looks like we will have another day in BA as our flight home is late evening.  Can you tell me who you used for that most excellent and extensive BA tour?  Thanks.

Sure , we used Tours by Locals and the guides name was Elisabet . Here's a link https://www.toursbylocals.com/TBL/WebObjects/ToursByLocals.woa/1/wo/wwYGcbAO0ZanVtpSuMtqS0/2.69.1.3.1.5.5.1

Thanks for info.  We don't go until January 21, 2020 but I am a plan ahead person.  We only do a big trip like this every year and a half so it helps with the waiting.  We live in Puerto Rico so I also like cool weather cruises as I can wear jeans, sweaters and jackets...although we do tend to bundle up more then others.  😎

Hi scubacruiser, I am interested in the Baltic cruise for 2020, and would love to watch your reviews/pics when you go on this one next week. Do you have a website/blog where i can follow your adventures and I can get some ideas when I go next year?

We don't have a blog or website so we use this site . We don't do our travelogues until we return home and we may do our review on the cruise lines site like HAL or on the destination site like South America or Baltic . It will more than a month before we review our next cruise . If you would like to see our previous Baltic cruise that we took in 2016 with our grandson use can click on this link .

 

 

Here's a few photos from that trip
